The Walters & Hogsett Jewelers Experience
Our Rolex History
With more than 40 years of celebrating the art of jewelry and building client relationships, Walters & Hogsett Jewelers continues to thrive and serve clients and the community with the hospitality you deserve, the highest quality jewelry and timepieces, and personal attention. Walters & Hogsett is a top-ranked jeweler for Colorado and beyond with one focus: to surprise and delight customers by combining the essence of casual luxury with the warmth of a family. Over 30 years ago, it was with great pride that we accepted the privilege of becoming an Official Rolex Jeweler, as the brand sets the global standard for exquisitely crafted, high-performance timepieces.
Walters & Hogsett Jewelers began as a small operation in Longmont, Colorado when Walter (Wally) and BJ Vieregg teamed up with Ron and Gail Hogsett. All four had dreamed of bringing luxury jewelry to Boulder County, and each of them had traveled a different path to that dream and that moment.
Despite humble beginnings, and selling jewelry with kids running around in the back room, word of mouth about the store spread fast.
After a couple of years, the team opened another storefront in the Village Shopping Center in Boulder. An exciting opportunity presented itself and the store was able to move to an upscale shopping center, The Water Street Complex, where it is still located today.
Don Janson joined the partnership bringing 18 years of diverse jewelry experience with him. Don, proved exponentially valuable to the store, and he was quickly dubbed the “&” in the name Walters & Hogsett. In 1995, Walters & Hogsett became an Official Rolex Jeweler.
Continuing the Legacy
When original owners Wally and BJ retired in 2013, the ownership of the store was transferred to Wally’s nephew, Mark Vieregg, and Don Janson.
